With the NFL Combine underway in Indianapolis, who are big named prospects that Tampa Bay Buccaneers fans should be watching?
The NFL Combine is officially underway with measurements and interviews happening throughout the week and on-the-field testing taking place starting on Friday and going on throughout the weekend. With the fifth overall pick and six picks total in the draft, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will have their work cut out for them, needing to capitalize on their limited assets.
While many mocks, including one found here, have the Bucs set to snag left tackle from the University of Florida, Jawaan Taylor, it was reported that he will not be able to take part in any of the drills while he is recovering from an injury. This is a major bummer for Tampa Bay fans and front office as it would have been great to get an idea of Taylor’s athletic ability heading further into the pre-draft process.
Other notable players that will not be able to partake in testing that may be on the Buccaneers board include Alabama safety Deionte Thompson and running back Josh Jacobs. Excluding those who will not be able to participate, here are five names to keep a close tab on this week as they hope to bolster their draft stock at the Combine in Indianapolis.
